Farm Bill Spending Directed to Food Stamps

The SNAP/Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture,is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior,asks us to "Please Do Not Feed The Animals." This is because the animals may grow
dependent on handouts and not learn to take care of themselves.

VitaFerm Sure Champ® Welcomes Three Summer Interns

Saint Joseph, MO — BioZyme Inc, maker of VitaFerm and Sure Champ®, has named Jamie Baumgardner, Robin Kleine and Kelsey Steketee interns for summer 2012. These young ladies will be acting in sales and public relations roles; promoting Sure Champ® at six junior nationals across the country.

Baumgardner, Enid, Okla., will be serving as the sales intern. She will be a junior at Oklahoma State University in the fall, where she is studying agricultural business and agricultural communications. Growing up, she showed hogs and participated in public speaking events through 4-H and FFA. Also at OSU, Baumgardner is actively involved within the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR) where she serves as a CASNR Ambassador and on student council. 

"Sure Champ® has proven to be a remarkably successful product that allows animals to reach their full potential,” said Baumgardner, “I can't wait to be a part of this continually growing business."

A senior at Kansas State University, Kleine, is double majoring in agricultural communications and journalism as well as animal sciences and industry. Originally from Lowell, Ind., Kleine grew up showing cattle with her family and participating on various judging teams. She will be serving Sure Champ® as the public relations and sales intern. At K-State, Kleine is involved with the Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow and is the assistant coach of the KSU dairy cattle judging team, among other activities.

“Livestock has always been important to me and my family, and I am excited to learn more about the sales side of the industry,” said Kleine, “Plus, I’m honored to promote a product we proudly use in our show barn.”

Also joining the Sure Champ® team for a month long sales internship is Kelsey Steketee, from Caledonia, Mich., where she grew up on her family’s purebred Hereford operation. She began exhibiting cattle at age seven, and also showed hogs and sheep. Steketee is a junior at Michigan State University, where she is majoring in animal science with a concentration in animal industries.

“I’m excited to work with research proven products such as VitaFerm and Sure Champ®, as these high quality products sparked my interest in a livestock nutrition career after graduation,” said Steketee, “I’m also looking forward to meeting and helping current BioZyme Inc customers and staff.”
